Apple Gets Small Fine in S. Korea for Location Data

South Korea's telecom regulator will impose a 3 million won (US$2,829) fine on Apple Inc. for allegedly collecting the location data of iPhone users in the country, in a development that comes amid growing concerns over the privacy of mobile users world-wide. The Korea Communications Commission said that after a four-month investigation it found that even if iPhone users disabled location systems on their handsets, Apple collected users' whereabouts from June 22 last year through May 4 this year.
